When the temperature drops, it can be tough to keep cute when all you want to do is stay cozy. But with a little bit of ingenuity, you can easily take your winter outfits from functional to fab. Here's three essentials you should have in your wardrobe this winter.
1. Pea Coat
Add a little Victorian-era romance to your look with a long, double breasted pea coat. These coats are oh-so elegant for winter. Not to mention, they're also very warm. Make sure you look for coats with a wool-blend if you want to stay extra toasty in the frigid weather. Finish this look off with a gorgeous plaid skirt and turtleneck sweater, with a matching scarf, stockings, and the Darling Dreams.
2. Stockings, Tights, and Leggings
Speaking of stockings, there's no way you'll want to go bare-legged in the winter time! If you can't stand the thought of going without your favorite dresses and skirts, then make sure you invest in a good pair of stockings, tights or leggings. Transparent nylon stockings can make a dressy look ultra-feminine for a fancy night out, while thick, knit leggings will keep your legs cozy in the cold - perfect for everyday wear. It all depends on what look you're going for. For this fancy ensemble, we paired this lovely black dress with nylon patterned stockings, the perfect touch of makeup, and the leopard print Baby Feet mary janes. Don't forget a red winter coat for the perfect holiday look!
3. Fur Vests
Want to add an extra layer of warmth to a chic look? A fur vest is the perfect way to do that. We love how they add a nice bit of texture to any outfit. If fur makes you cringe, consider looking for faux-fur vests instead. Either way, you get the same effect - a cozy and fun winter look. We've paired the vest with burgundy colored skinny jeans, a striped sweater, earmuff and gloves, and the Toung in Cheek. So feminine and fun!
